About Us

Currently counting 24 constituent members, The Northern Health Science Alliance Ltd, is a company limited by guarantee hosted by Newcastle University, and was established in 2012 as a front door to the North of England’s health research system, working towards building a healthier and wealthier region.  As a partnership and company established by leading universities, NHS Hospital Trusts and Academic Health Science Networks across the North of England’s 16m population, the NHSA provides a portal to its internationally recognised health science excellence.

By bringing this alliance together, the national and international profile of the NHSA has increased considerably and our social media impact places our work at the very heart of regional, national and international discussion and debate.
